Conceptual artist Katie Lewis devises elaborate methods of recording data about herself, be it sensations felt by various body parts or other other aspects of life’s minutiae plotted over time using little more than pins, thread and pencil marked dates. The artworks themselves are abstracted from their actual purpose, and only the organic forms representing the accumulation data over time are left. She describes her process as being extremely rigid, involving the creation of strict rules on how data is collected, documented, and eventually transformed into these pseudo-scientific installations.

Bernardí Roig is an artist from Mallorca, Spain who explores concepts of loneliness, death, and immortality with his surreal light sculptures. Roig frequently uses a portly white figure made of polyester resin who is seen interacting with fluorescent lights, sometimes staring at it with a childlike curiosity, while in other installations appearing to be violently blinded. The lights are also used as an encumbrance, a bright weighted burden carried through the gallery space. More

Continuing a parade of Korean artists featured on Colossal since last week, behold the sculptural work of Bhac Ji-Ho. Like some of the others, information about this sculptor is extremely scare, and what I can find seems almost incomprehensible to me when using Google translate. Ji-Ho created these sculptures out of a unique synthetic resin that results in a smooth, almost plastic texture. More

I don’t normally post two things from an artist in one day; however this seemed too good to pass up, especially due to this blog’s affinity for matches. Ryo Shimizu created this delicate human shell out of hundreds of matches entitled Matchstick Drawing. How macabrely awesome it would have been to watch this figure meet his flaming demise. More

At its core the basic premise of this photo series by Italian photographer and designer Francesco Brunotti isn’t something tremendously new, that is the digital removal of objects from images, for instance Seats by Jens Sage. But in its art direction and execution something wonderful emerges and I found myself smiling hugely. See his first series, and the second. More

All at once delicate and nightmarish these painted polymer clay figures by Seoul-based artist Choi Xooang are nothing short of remarkable. Try as I might it’s hard to find a definitive, trustworthy article to source information from, and even the spelling of his name seems to change from site to site. However it seems generally accepted that Xooang is attempting to draw attention to human rights abuses in Korea, and seeing these somewhat macabre, stunted figures unable to see or speak, it’s hard to dispute that.
